Dynamic Thai Massage is not new in its essence, but coined as a very specific name for a hybrid Thai Massage style based on the work of the late Ajan Chaiyuth Priyasith, one of the most influential Thai Massage masters from Chiang Mai in the last decades.
There’s very little written or visual work from Chaiyuth, but there’s some rare footage on YouTube to get a bit of the idea of Chaiyuth’s “Dynamic Thai Massage” style.
But what then is Dynamic Thai Massage today?
This Thai Massage style is based on gentle rocking, and repetitive, harmonic movements, stretches, and traction of different body parts. Sometimes a whole session is carried out as one of continuous movement. As taught today, it is used as therapeutic work and it borrows from both Thai Massage and Osteopathy.
A Rocking Thai Massage treatment can improve fluidity, flow, and continuity in Thai Massage sessions. One of the important therapeutic goals is to restore mobility and to release the receiver’s nervous system to be able to experience full relaxation of body and mind.
There are quite a few Thai Massage instructors who are involved with Dynamic Thai Massage, Harmonics, or Rocking, such as David Lutt (France), Krishnataki (Greece), Thierry Bienfaisant (Belgium), Remco (Thailand), Till Heeg (Germany), Davor Haber (Croatia), Ralf Marzen (United Kingdom), just to name some examples.
